Location: 5 miles south of Turtle Portage; about a mile SE of Blueberry Island, where the south-eastern arm of Saboskong Bay begins.
Description: This small eastward-opening bay in the island just east of Splitrock Point provides good shelter even is easterly winds if you tuck in behind the southern point. The bay is shallow and somewhat weedy towards the inner shore.
Shore Mooring: The only place suitable for shore mooring is on the NW side of the rocky southern point. Shore access is easy here, and there is plenty of room for a campfire on the point.
Hazards: Notice the 5 foot shoal shown near the mouth of the bay. It could present a problem if the lake level is low. Also, the broken pine tree on the point seems to be very attractive to wasps. Check first before you reach in to get a branch for your campfire.
Nearby Attractions: About a mile to the south is Splitrock Bay, an interesting bay to explore. It seems to be very popular (hence probably good?) fishing area. On the eastern shore just before the bay narrows there is a fair shore mooring place, well-sheltered, but with difficult shore access because of dense undergrowth. The shoreline in the rest of the bay is high and steep. Look for a very faint rock painting in the narrowest part of this bay on the west side.
Other Comments: The anchorage in the island east of Splitrock Point was first reported to us by Murray Duclos on Keoonik, hence the name “Murray’s Place”.
